Today I did something that I have never done before. I hired someone to clean my house. I thought only rich or important people did that. So let me just say that it is the best thing I ever did in my life. My house is clean, the furniture got rearranged(now it "flows"), and my house eminates the smell of Murphy's Oil Soap, but in a good way.
I may do this on a fairly regular basis to keep the dust bunnies from taking over. And it has totally reduced my stress level going into the holidays. If you need someone, let me know I can give you her number. As long as you don't need her next month on the 16th. Then you can have her.
